'Tribal Gathering' Wanderlust Magazine

'Tribal Gathering' - Travel feature for Wanderlust Magazine. The Bedouin of Egypt’s South Sinai desert battle to preserve their culture in the face of the encroaching modern world.

"TRIBAL GATHERING" - At the invitation of the Makhad Trust, who are fighting to restore the oases that are so essential to the Bedouin way of life, we trek through remote valleys to attend a historic meeting of the South Sinai Bedouin Tribes. A meeting we hope will help safeguard their future...
